This daring PrEP video puts the sexy back in HIV prevention
woodsmen saidGeneric PreP is being evaluated by FDA. Bye bye Big Pharma. In the only study on the use of PreP by gay men relied on by the CDC, PreP provides 98.4% prohtection against positive seroconversion in anal sex.
woodsmen saidHey Sydney: I could not find the RJ thread where the CDC hyperlink was cited. There were several studies involving different populations but only one study involving about 7000 gay men and that study's conclusion that about 60 men were seropositive out of about 7000 after taking PreP continuously while they were having unprotected anal intercourse lead to the protective rate of about 98.4%.

woodsmen saidAccording to World Health Organization:ewee
"According to a 2000 report by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), consistent use of latex condoms reduces the risk of HIV/AIDS transmission by approximately 85% relative to risk when unprotected"
woodsmen saidWhatever the agenda is, I think each gay man before having anal sex need to ask this first question. Am I a top or a bottom?
If the answer is a bottom, you can't wear a condom. So the protection you can control is whether to take PreP. PreP will be there for you if condom breaks, if you share any type of fluid with the top including saliva of the mouth or mucous of the anal rings through rimming.
If you are a top, the question is not just whether you wear a condom but if you have a choice between two bottoms, one taken PreP and one not, which would you to pick to have sex? Because there is a 95% probability that the bottom taking PreP may not have HIV, he is probable safer to have sex with than the one not.
The additional question for the top is whether you should also taken PreP. The answer is Yes because if the condom breaks you will have the additional protection of PreP. Or if your sexual activities include sharing of any fluid with the bottom. Or if you cannot entirely trust whether the bottom is HIV free, whether he actually takes PreP.
So the bottom line is both top and bottom should take PreP, if your health and doctor agree, whether or not you will engage in unprotected anal sex.
And yes I believe that given PreP, it is irresponsible for condom advocates to push condom only sex which provides only 85% protection against HIV versus 95% protectiom of PreP.
